I don't think syrups in coffee count as a failure. Even soda is allowed between meals. However, I think soda is a bad idea. Have you tried sugar-free coffee syrups? That is what I use. Vanilla and Cinnamon Dulce are great and have zero calories.

I briefly looked at your menus. First, you are not eating obscene amounts. However, what stood out to me were these three things that are likely prohibiting weight loss: 1. You drink juice and milk quite often. Juice is about 100+ calories per glass and so is milk. 2. You seem to have 2 slices of br...

Shannon,
You and I sound a lot alike. I love Vanilla Coke Zero -- have you tried it?

Thanks for the response. I think we get on the same schedule as our kids and it makes us snack more. I hate that the schools have 1 or 2 snacktimes/day, as well. I don't think anyone needs that much food!!
